[MS Documentation] Missing CGI map_* variables in docs
|Reported by:||jmckenna@…||Owned by:||jmckenna|
|Component:||Documentation - MapServer||Version:||unspecified|
from IRC: ***** dpatton I was looking on mapserver.gis.umn.edu for an explanation of a MS CGI query string parameter I saw as part of a website's URL: "map_web_template". -->| adamhill_work (email@example.com) has joined #mapserver dpatton A search only finds 3 references to it - shouldn't there be something(in the CGI MapServer section?) that links "map_web_templae" to the Template Reference section of the documentation? -->| pakman (firstname.lastname@example.org) has joined #mapserver FrankW Is the TEMPLATE keyword not documented in the mapfile reference? FrankW As far as I know virtually every keyword in the mapfile can be set from the url in this manner. FrankW Though I don't normally use this mechanism. dpatton The only reference to "TEMPLATE" is in the Changes section: TEMPLATE has been removed, since the map_web_template syntax can be used to alter a template file. FrankW Hmm, funky. It's a mystery to me then. FrankW jmckenna? Any idea? dpatton It seems to me that map_web_template should be listed in the CGI page's Controls section? FrankW Perhaps. I must defer from expressing an opinion though since I don't know much about this. jmckenna template - sounds odd to me too, checking jmckenna dpatton: it seems the map_* variables are missing (web_template, legend_status, scalebar_status, web_imagepath, web_imageurl). i'm trying to find them in the docs and cannot. i'm also searching bugs to see when they were added. but thanks for pointing that out, i'll make sure they are added dpatton jmckenna: ok, so it wasn't just my lack of MS knowledge then ;-)
